If you are a real beginner, I suggest the 24 One Hour lessons book by Carla Rose. That is what I started with and was very happy with it. A step further is Adobe's Classroom in a Book. Once you get past those. try Martin Evening's Adobe Photoshop CS For Photographers and Katrin's Restoration and Retouching. and Bruce Frasier's Photoshop CS and also his Camera RAW if you shoot RAW. IMO the best writers are Eisman, Bruce Fraser, and Evening and Tim Grey. You cannot go wrong reading their stuff. You also might want to sign up for the Epson Academy web classes, especially if you want to get into printing your own photos. I have found that I have really learned a lot by printing my own photos. My original attempts screamed out my editing errors! Read Tim Grey's Color Confidence to learn printing. Go to Tim's website and sign up for his free newsletter too. You will learn a lot.
